    19th century jacob petit porcelain fruit comport

    A 19th century Jacob Petit fruit porcelain comport, the centre with three finely modelled young women in biscuit, beautifully gilded and virtually un-rubbed, signed.

    Jacob Petit (1796-1868) was a talented porcelain painter who worked for the Sevres factory in France, then opened his own shop.He moved his company to Paris in 1869. In less than 10 years, he had hired about 200 people to make and decorate porcelains. They made ornamental vases, statues, clocks, inkwells and perfume bottles. A specialty was figural veilleuses shaped like sultans or fortunetellers. These were tea warmers meant for use in the bedroom. Each was a stand with space for a candle heater and a teapot.
